Suzy Witherell has been a part of the Mengali Accountancy team since 2008. Over her 20-year administrative career, she has taken the utmost pride in growing professionally alongside the firm; increasing her technical knowledge and continuously striving to exceed expectations. Suzy's background includes working with Burbank Housing Management Corporation for nearly 5 years, with a focus on low-income tax-credit housing management. She further expanded her experience, spending a few years in the wine industry working at Lynmar Estate in Sebastopol.


Suzy was looking to turn her background and knowledge into a fulfilling career when she found Mengali Accountancy. "I was looking for a team I could grow with and stay with long-term. A place that would value my contributions. Mengali Accountancy was it!" She believes the match was 'fate' and has never looked back. Suzy also believes in being accommodating and maintaining an authentically positive attitude. She loves "being able to provide the best support possible to this team and our clients," she says.  


Suzy became a National Compliance Professional in tax-credit housing in 2004 and

earned her designation as a Certified Administrative Professional through the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) in June 2014. She is also a 2020 recipient of the North Bay Business Journal Forty Under 40 award.



Originally from San Francisco, Suzy moved north to Forestville with her parents when she was

seven. After sampling life in different cities and towns within Sonoma County, Suzy

eventually settled down in Windsor with her husband, Sean, and their two sons, Shane and

Kason. She spends the majority of her time off with her family and claims a very simple lifestyle

that revolves around her children. You will most likely spot her taking the kids to one of their

sporting events or walking with the family to the Windsor Town Green for some fresh air

and a bite to eat. "It’s nothing extravagant but I love every minute of it," she affirms.


When Suzy and her family decide to get out of the area, they usually go "glamping"in

their 5th wheel toy hauler or to their favorite destination, Disneyland. "We're addicted to

Disneyland! We usually plan a big family trip with my in-laws every 12 to 18 months," she

confesses, "It’s our ‘thing’ now!" and admits they have now spent over a month

collectively between all the parks, including a 10-day trip to Disney World.

Suzy is also a devoted San Francisco Giants fan. Having grown up around baseball in

her family, she prefers it to any other sport. "Now my kids play baseball and are Giants

fans, too," she says. Suzy is very hopeful for another World Series title this year. Let’s

go, Giants!

Suzy is a proud supporter of the American Heart Association. “Mengali Accountancy

introduced me to the organization and has gotten me very passionate about the

cause”, she explains. Suzy has participated in the annual Heart Walk with the

Mengali Accountancy Team for the past several years - the team works together

to raise donations for the association.
